Rhodesian Photos: Old Salisbury

Following photos of "Old Salisbury" were made available to ORAFs by Nick Baalbergen,

Nick Writes:-

I have attached original photos from about the same time. Note that the two early photos of Manica Road circa 1910 were taken before the construction of the Standard Bank building, which is conspicuously absent in both images. The early photo looking west from the corner of Manica Road and First Street, shows the site on which the Standard Bank would be built - left behind the horse.
